yeah what you can do is just boot up normally, and instead of typing the person's account, type administrator, and then hit enter.

With windows 2000 I am prety sure you can boot from a NTFS boot floppy and then delete the SAM file and that should clear the passwords to the administrator account. If I were you I would read into this more on another site because this thread flirts with the border of hacking which is a topic that is very looked down upon on these fourms. If you do find a article on it would you be so kind as to link me to it upon a pm? Thanks and hope that helped.
